Is There Any Way Of Widening A Bearing On A Router Bit?

I have what I guess is a type of round-over bit, sorry I dont know the proper name. This is a bit where the bearing on the bottom is smaller than the cutting edge above it. I was wondering if there is a safe way of enlarging the bearing so I could use it as a regular round-over bit. I seem to remember hearing some people using tape to make bearings bigger. Would that work?

Thanks

A bit late on a reply but I have seen people use shrink tubing. That way it's a tight fit and no seam. This is for incremental size increases. Yes you need heat to shrink the tube around the bearing.
